U.S., Bulgarian troops learn combat life saving skills

U.S. Army Capt. Gregory K. Jensen observes Bulgarian Land Forces Capt. Dushko Mimev as he practices clearing the airway of a mannequin during medical training here Aug. 19. This was part of a three-day training for military doctors of both nations to share knowledge and skills to enhance their lifesaving skills. Bulgarians educated U.S. military doctors on military medical and disaster management systems. In addition, U.S. Army doctors instructed airway management and medical evacuation procedures using Strykers, which are eight-wheeled armored infantry vehicles. Jensen is an anesthesiologist for the 212th Combat Support Hospital out of Miesau, Germany. Mimev is the chief of medical post for the 78th Engineer Battalion out of Stara Zagora, Bulgaria. Joint Task Force-East offers participants opportunities to train in a joint service and multi-national environment.
